River Arun Swim 2019 Never tried open water swimming? Then our River Arun Swim is the perfect swimming challenge for you! The 2019 River Arun Swim will be held in August - date TBC. Our River Arun Swim gives you the chance to soak up the English countryside in rural Sussex with a complimentary breakfast, a beautiful summer swim in the River Arun and then an optional celebratory post-swim lunch at a local pub (at your own expense). The swim is around four miles long, and you’ll be swimming with a small group of up to 20 other swimmers, so you’ll have company the whole way. The River Arun is a tidally assisted river, which means that although four miles sounds like a tough challenge, it will feel much easier than swimming the same distance in a lake or pool. This makes our River Arun Swim the perfect open water swimming challenge for first timers.
